      villain is 28/23/3.4
      Just wondering is this the best way to play the hand. I think the turn call is a must, be is maybe checking a better line?
      And pre is better to sometimes 3bet here or always call?

      The call? You mean turnbet? Yes.

      Preflop: depending on villain and fold to 3B , call or 3bet.

      Postflop: perfectly fine

      Hello Wacko118,

      Flop: I like the Check/Raise size here, gains the maximum fold equity, pot size as it should be.
      Turn: Although here it's the case what we should ask ourselves. Do you think we are capable of laying him down any hand which called on flop? According to that I would act, either to Bet it or maybe even go for Check/Call cause of having small fold equity here and we might save some bucks by that while he could easily even Check behind. But as you Bet there is no way I am able to fold my hand for the given odds.

      We need ~21% equity including rake:

      Board: J:club: 7:club: Q:diamond:  4:diamond:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    68.71%  68.71%   0.00% { QQ-JJ, 77, AQs, KQs, QTs+, Q7s, J7s, AQo, KQo, QTo+ }
      UTG+1  31.29%  31.29%   0.00% { Tc9c }

      So I would still Call it down. Also overall most likely going even for 2nd barrel is a great idea here cause the opponent may find even that he is capable of folding the best hand.

      Best Regards.
